Discover your badass self with a heart-centered, multi-certified coach
The Enneagram is a tool used for radical self-discovery; or, in Amy terms: a way to be self-aware AF. Developed most recently by psychologists, it ties our 9 personality archetypes to our individual core fears and motivations and tells us how we interpret the world.
You can find hundreds of simple Enneagram type tests online, but they can often be misleading; your type can be influenced by other types (giving mixed results), but going deeper into a basic test, with the guidance of a certified coach, will help you find your core personality type so that you can work with it - not fight against it.
I see the Enneagram as a map of your soul. When you know where your challenges are (steep mountains that you can never quite climb over), then knowledge of your Enneagram type becomes a tool to help you prepare to break unhealthy patterns that keep you in the valley. When you know how to navigate through what’s holding you back, you find a way to move towards your highest self.
You can use knowledge of the Enneagram to improve communication with others and to help others improve their communication with YOU. It helps you find compassion, helps you know when someone is struggling and - most importantly - tells you when YOU are struggling. Your reactive behavior patterns are lifelong and run deep. The Enneagram tells you WHY you are reacting that way. The Enneagram helps explain WHY and reveals the driver behind our behaviors.
It's Why we do what we do & why we react in different ways!
Just knowing WHY is the beginning of self-discovery. Once you know why, then what?
That's where I come in...
Learning how to use the Enneagram is the first step. Which of the nine types are you? It isn't always straightforward to figure out, but discovering which type you are with a certified Enneagram coach can make the process a lot easier.
Which of the Nine Are You?
Imagine that you’re a teacher in charge of nine different kids. Sorry if that triggers a bunch of y’all, but just hang with me here. The Enneagram says that each of these kids is going to display a different set of patterns based on how they interpret the world and, when the world pushes back, how they’re able to manage their emotions. Then, each kid will be affected by and will affect the other differently based on their system of personality typing, or the number of their type. Instead of the kids named “John” or “Sarah,” they’re given a number. You are one of those kids, but you might also exhibit the traits of 3.
Each Enneagram type has a range of associated personality features including motivations, fears, “wings” which may influence you, and “stances” which relate to how you get your needs met and reach your goals.
To start the process of finding your type, I'll send you a simple quiz, similar to many of the online tests, which will provide us with a basic understanding of which Enneagram types relate the most to you.
This is only the START of our journey together, though! With those quiz results in hand, we'll go through a one hour session together over Zoom to dig deeper, with the objection to clarify your core type from your wing and other influences.
I'll take you through all the basics of your Enneagram type; the key personality features, likes, dislikes, strengths, and weaknesses. This will give you a real basis for understanding yourself and how Enneagram typing can form a very simple framework for seeing how different personalities (numbers) can interrelate with each other both positively and negatively.
For some, discovering their type feels like taking a fresh, cleansing breath. It can feel illuminating and inspiring. For some, they’ll appreciate being seen and understood - and validated. For others (like me), they might feel exposed and uncomfortable. It might bring up feelings of failure.
By the way - how you respond to knowing more about your Enneagram is probably influenced by your number, boo, so to have a certified coach with you to help you navigate that knowledge in a way that is healthiest and most productive for you is exactly why I offer this session.
We are all influenced by our personality types, wants and needs, and identifying yours is the start of a huge journey into deepening and applying that understanding so your decisions don't only make sense, but always lead you towards your highest vibration: soul alignment.
Start understanding yourself by finding your Enneagram type
A simple quiz and a one hour session helped get me back on the road to re-alignment. It answered long held questions, and helped me see routes to resolving conflicts, taking control of my career, strengthening relationships, and how I could help others do the same; sometimes all you need is a shift in perspective, or a new direction to explore.
I'm a fully certified Enneagram coach trained in helping people discover and explore their type, and coaching them through using that understanding to reach their goals and desires, overcome fears and barriers to their more true soul alignment.
Whether you have concerns at work, in your family, in yourself, or simply want to explore, the Enneagram & I are standing at attention for YOU.
Sessions can be booked in the evenings and at weekends so it's easy for you to fit in around work and other commitments; it's easy to start diving into the Enneagram with the Aligned Soul Co. today
